One sub-dir. It sounds better.

To run this kind of testing, graphics env is required. I don't know if
buildbot slaves meet the requirement.
Currently, we can use some external machines, periodically retrieve
builds from buildbot to local and then run testing. That also make us
cover more testing platforms.
